Jeremy Corbyn is to unveil a “programme of hope” today as he officially launches Labour’s manifesto.

Following the leaking of a draft last week, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will set out his party's plans for the next five years as its manifesto is officially launched in Bradford today.

From a speech he is expected to give at the launch, Mr Corbyn said: "This is a programme of hope. The Tory campaign, by contrast, is built on one word: fear." 

However Conservative candidate for South West Hertfordshire David Gauke criticised the finer details of the manifesto, saying: “Jeremy Corbyn has made so many unfunded spending commitments it is clear that Labour would have to raise taxes dramatically because his sums don’t add up.”
